Family-Friendly Fun Runs + On your Mark, Get Set, Race!

Warmer temperatures have arrived and it’s the perfect time to get moving with the family. You’ll find a whole host of fun runs that welcome the entire family in Kalamazoo, Portage, and Southwest Michigan.

If you know of any additional fun runs in the area, we’d love to add it to the list. Click here to submit a run or walk to our Event Calendar.

Note: Make sure to check with the specifics of each run/walk for registration and other logistical information.
